Christmas Markets

Thousands of golden lights on Schillerplatz square and around the Gothic collegiate church create a wonderful, festive atmosphere and signal the start of the Christmas season in Kaiserslautern. At the traditional Christmas market, there are plenty of culinary specialities to try or you can browse for the perfect gift. You'll discover an endless choice of delicious gingerbread, fine honeys and tea varieties. What's more, the fun lasts longer here than usual: the Silvestermarkt from 27 to 30 December features performances of seasonal music and craft demonstrations. The cosmopolitan 'culture market' at Fruchthalle hall features different exhibitors from all corners of the globe. Here you'll find a colourful array of ponchos from Bolivia, batik textiles from Senegal and saris from Sri Lanka. Artists from Saint-Quentin and Silkeborg, both twinned with Kaiserslautern, will also be exhibiting works. You'll discover a real treasure trove of exquisite jewellery, quirky accessories, glass, flowers and, of course, Christmas decorations.
